Javed shines in drawn game at Darley Road

Under 19 Cricket
By M. Shamil Amit

S. Thomas’ batsman Javed Bongso shone in their drawn Under 19 inter-school cricket encounter at Darley Road yesterday. The second day’s play got underway only at 1.30 p.m. hampered by wet outfield due to the previous day’s rain.

Javed’s knock of 71 with four boundaries helped the Thomians, resuming from their overnight score of 52 for 4 and then were struggling later in the day on 130 for 7, by putting on a valuable 74 runs for the eighth wicket with Rishane Mathangaweera enabling his side make 234.

This was in reply to the home side’s score of 172. The match played for the Gilmour Jayasuriya Trophy saw the Josephians retain it on virtue of being the winners in 2009.

Two players from St. Joseph’s Sachin Hewawasam and Rosco Thattil won the best batsman and bowler’s prizes while Javed Bongso of S. Thomas’ was adjudged the man of the match.

St. Joseph’s 172 (Sachin Hewawasam 55, Nishitha Perera 30, Dishan Dissanayake 27, Dilon Fernandopulle 23 n.o; Nuwan Kavinda 3 for 24, Shivane Perera 3 for 30, Chamod Pathirana 2 for 30, Madushan Ravichandrakumar 2 for 60)

S. Thomas’ (52/4 overnight) 234 (Javed Bongso 71, Kavindu Perera 31, Rishane Mathangaweera 31, Chamod Pathirana 30, Vinura de Silva 20; Rosco Thattil 6 for 77, Dinal Dambarage 3 for 64)
